In a 2015 interview Doug Bogie shattered past misconceptions about his departure from Queen, saying it was a simple case of moving on to another band. He recalls:
"I thought that we have played two excellent and exciting gigs. However, in the back of the borrowed van after the Yes gig at Kingston Polytechnic, there was one of those taking everything apart discussions: 'so everything is terrible', 'it's a waste of time', and Freddie announces he doesn’t want to continue. So, as the new boy who knows nothing of their past activities and relationships, I just accept that that is the end of the experiment! A shame, but not unusual with bands with creative members."
